I looked at it today and you could see the sadness in it's headlight.

I plan on flogging it mercylessly on fri though.

It took me about 4 hours to take everything apart. Now the chassis, swingarm, fork and clamps are on the way for black powder-coating and anodizing:ride:

Looked at it. Sighed and made it a silent promise to ride it hard and put it away wet this weekend. Dunno about the wet part, not a lot of mud/rain here in the desert.

I had those handgaurds on one of my bikes. Pretty good. Not real stout but they flex instead of breaking. Just enough to keep branches and vines away from your hands.

Hmmm, yeah.... baby.... First ride with the AIS back on. Got her all worked up, hot and dusty. Then just put her away. Sweet... not high maintenance like the other two in the garage,,,, sheesh...

Went out 15 min later and vented the shocks. Don't like it when they get all PUMPED up.

Bought it in Phoenix, flew myself down and stripped it small enough to fit in a mailbox or suitcase, sent it 4000 miles, flew myself home, waited for the mail, just finished bolting back together, saved $3500 in shipping.

Took awhile to start ,sat all winter . Took a couple rides up and down the road. ah what the hell! took it in the woods , very soggy submerged in mud a quick blast through the creek and back in the garage. I will wait for it to dry up a little all I could think of was falling in the mud. some of the puddles are almost 2 ft deep

      So apparently some mx fcr carbs have removable valve seats and some dont. I didnt know this and just thought mine was really stuck in there so i drilled it out. Was going to replace it anyway. But it turns out that i have the model that is not suppose to have the valve seat removed. or so i think. Is anyone aware of this difference between the same carb. Do you know where i can get another valve seat? its off a 2003 yz450f

      Hey all, recently getting into motocross again and bought a used bike from a kid who lacked on the maintenance side of things for the bike. What I have found / believe is happening is oil is leaking out of the cylinder head breather tube. Before going on my first ride with the bike I had a respectable amount of oil right in the middle of the checkered oil marks on the dip sticks. However after about 5 hours riding I checked the oil to find that it was barely even on the dip stick. I know there has been oil leaking out of the breather but could have been caused because an overflow on the oil change from the kid. I mean the bike is 8 years old maybe it is time for some top end work. On that note would a person change out the piston regardless of condition along with the rings? Is it possible the rings are just not positioned right? I would definitely do the valves while I have the bike open anyways.
       
      Any info would be greatly appreciated I just find it odd that it took 5 hours to drain, reading through other posts some guys were having puddles of oil after 20 minuets of running time.

      I live in northwest Virginia (Charlottesville area)  about an hour south of DC, I am not aware of any tracks in the area that are either public (or private but allow people to ride with permission).  Does anyone know of any good tracks in my area?
